AI Ethics in delivering Healthcare Analytics
MedHealth
May 19, 2022
AI provides the mechanisms to enable machines to learn. Incorporating AI in the delivery of healthcare knowledge will facilitate fast, efficient, and accurate healthcare decision making. AI provides the capabilities to expand, use, and create knowledge in ways we have not yet imagined. AI systems which use machine learning, can detect patterns in enormous volumes of data and model complex, interdependent systems to generate outcomes that improve the efficiency of healthcare decision making, The use of AI (machine learning) in delivering knowledge is based on the data that is used to train the machine learning algorithms.AI has been positioned as an important element in delivering health related knowledge and it is imperative that when AI is utilized to assist patients and physicians to make healthcare decisions that the knowledge is without bias, and the decisions made with the knowledge are ethical.

Essential Topics in Information Architecture
A.J. Rhem & Associates, Inc.
March 15, 2023
Information Architecture (IA) is the art and science of labeling and organizing information so that it is findable, manageable, and useful. The use of information architecture has expanded enormously in recent years. This expansion has evolved from websites to intranets, content management systems, knowledge management systems, and data analytics (data preparation for data analytics/machine learning) and defining data structures for your Internet of Things (IoT) devices (sensors).

This book leverages my thirty (30 plus) years of experience in Knowledge Management (KM), Information Architecture (IA), and Artificial Intelligence (AI) disciplines. Since 1990, I have been involved in AI (neural networks, expert systems, machine learning, and knowledge graphs), KM, and IA - researching, developing processes for capturing and codifying knowledge, developing knowledge management systems, developing and operationalizing knowledge management and information architecture strategies across several industries, and developing information architecture for a myriad of knowledge management, content management, and document management systems.

Knowledge Management in Law Firms: Expertise in Action
Globe Law and Business
December 31, 2016
Knowledge has always been at the heart of the legal profession. This is because an essential component of practising law involves applying knowledge and expertise to solve clients' legal problems. In the rapidly changing contemporary legal world, where cases, transactions and legal issues become increasingly more complex and globalised, managing the firm’s knowledge and expertise becomes crucial for finding innovative solutions to legal problems, serving clients effectively, reducing risks and delivering profitability to the firm.
In this timely book produced in association with the International Bar Association, more than a dozen renowned knowledge management professionals provide their expert insights on all aspects of managing knowledge in a law firm. Topics covered include: building the business case for a knowledge management plan; implementing an agreed strategy; organising the knowledge management function; implementing enterprise search technology; and fostering the contribution of lawyers to their clients’ perspective on learning and quality.

Essential Topics in Artificial Intelligence: An examination of AI Ethics and Governance, Large Language Models, Artificial General Intelligence, and Natural Language Processing
A.J. Rhem & Associates, Inc.
December 22, 2023
The intent of AI is to enable computers to perform tasks that normally require human intelligence, as such AI will evolve to take many jobs once performed by humans. When I started in AI in the late 1980’s and through the late 1990’s, AI was identified as a multidisciplinary science, which included expert systems, neural networks, robotics, Natural Language Processing (NPL), Speech Recognition and Vision. This multidisciplinary aspect of AI enabled AI to make inroads into industries such as healthcare, automotive, manufacturing, and the military. The most recent focus on AI is concerned with the implementation of Machine Learning (ML) Algorithms, Large Language Models (LLMs), and Generative AI which produce images. A host of Generative AI applications have entered the consumer consciousness specifically around LLMs (i.e., ChatGPT, Bard) and Generative AI image creation (i.e., Midjourney, DALL-E2). In this book I explore the following subjects pertinent to today's AI landscape: AI Ethics and Governance, Large Language Models such as ChatGPT, Artificial General Intelligence, and Natural Language Processing and more.

Delivering Knowledge-as-a-Service - Empowering your people with intelligent access to knowledge!

Location: Open    Date Available: November 02nd, 2019     Fees: negotiable

Submission Date: November 02nd, 2019     Service Type: Service Offered

Delivering Knowledge as a Service – KaaS, is not the same as Software as a Service (SaaS) although both share the foundational aspect of being cloud based. KaaS is about delivering the right knowledge to the right person in the right context at the right time via desktop, laptop or any mobile device. Catchy, yes but practical! KaaS delivery of knowledge consists of both explicit and tacit knowledge. It allows for access to tangible knowledge such as how-to’s, lessons learned, best practices, proven workflows, case studies, procedural manuals, plans, and templates as well as to the people who are experts about that knowledge. KaaS brings together KM and AI for intelligent delivery and access to knowledge.

This program will provide the participants with the understanding of KaaS as well as the tools and techniques to launch KaaS at their organization.
